Marco Maggi – Déplier

05. 09 – 10. 10 / 2015

Xippas Gallery, Paris

Marco Maggi’s project obliterates the distance between spectator and artwork and creates a new visual experience. The microscopic drawings, undetectable at a distance, become visible as the spectator approaches the work.

Maggi’s universe chiefly consists of a system of cutouts arranged in a linear motif of alternating solids and hollows that dangle from sheets of paper or the surfaces of a wall. These patterns create a surface depth that is at once unsettling and discrete. This structure grows organically forming a rhizome that stretches on for eternity. The spectator follows the twists on this imaginary map and plunges into an all-encompassing environment.
